Flaming will no longer be defined by how "bad" the flame is. If you are name calling, you will be moderated for flaming if reported (unless it's very clearly in jest). "Light flames" will no longer be a thing. No name calling, period. We will generally start with NWD on flames unless you're using seriously offensive flames in which case you'll probably be moderated for Offensive instead anyway.

So if I'm understanding this right, things that would have been deleted with no karma loss before will not be deleted but the poster will get a note from a mod saying "hey, that's against the rules technically" and things that would have been deleted with 3 karma loss before will be deleted with 0 karma loss now?

Is that right?

Yes and no. The basic premise is right but it isn't that black and white. Some things will still always be NKL'd.

If a game is officially release on January 31st but you get the game on the 28th for whatever reason (store sold it early, someone shipped it early). People posting early screenshots, story summaries, etc is the kind of stuff that gets us contacted by lawyers. Someone just saying "I got my copy early, yay!" won't, and would be NWD territory so we can warn them not to discuss the details.

Depends, it's a case by case basis depending on who they are and what they did to get banned. If you're a certain someone who has made over 10,000 accounts to troll the Switch board (yes, this is a real person), then yes. If you had one account banned over repeat minor offenses and decide to come back and reform, no.

Was not expecting this change to flaming. That's surprising.

Should be a pretty nice improvement over time to the boards, and it makes sense. When you try to draw a line between what flames are okay and what aren't, people will just find that line and sit on it to see how much they can get away with while being abusive and antagonistic towards people.

I also do think going forward it will probably be best to try and get that topic flare thing going to finally remove off-topic as a moderation reason. I feel like basically every general game board I ever frequented needed this. The whole social board split thing never seemed to work except in theory, and with that abandoned it did kind of leave people with no recourse except I guess...get a high level fellow to make a community board for it, or go off-site.

I just hope if/when it's added, you choose the flare BEFORE posting the topic. Because Reddit made me do it when I tried that site AFTER and just...that's dumb and I hated it.

It is unfortunate that this is the death of "clown shoes" as I became quite fond of that since it didn't really have any real punch to it and also just sounded really silly and weird. I mean I often just used it because it sounded funny to me, not even as a real insult.

But I think it's a fair price to pay to also reign in the abundance of stupid "lol cuck" and so on.

    Tightening up on flaming is a good thing. The level of discussion here had gone a bit too far into the hostile territory, and I'll gladly admit that I'm guilty of that also.

    The one thing I hope goes along with this -- especially in cases of trolling/flaming/insulting users -- is mods checking the topics for context and not just unilaterally deleting the post that's marked and pops up in the queue. The mod queue was poorly designed to see context beyond the marked post, but actual moderating entails either allowing or deleting both sides of the discussion to facilitate a better board exchange. It's not just punishing whichever user happened to get marked in a topic where there was a hostile exchange; that just pisses off users and appears like the rules are unfair.

    I do imagine that trolls will use the new flaming rule though. I mean it's pretty natural on GameFAQs for trolls to sorta strive towards getting the people they upset moderated while themselves skirting by the rules.

    Especially with the political climate lately, it's probably never been easier to feign genuine beliefs that are reprehensible while trying to play coy about what they're really supporting, baiting people to call them "racist" or something even more extreme, then just marking all that and laughing as those people get in trouble. And when you build up a history in a community of that, it's all the easier, because you can go extreme for a bit, establish a history, a reputation, and then need only lightly poke at that and hint to it from then on. Mods won't pick up on what they're doing but the troll's intended audience certainly will.

    Though on the flip side there are certainly a lot of people playing fast and loose with what constitutes a "racist" and especially a "nazi" and it's good that they will be dealt with more now.

      it is positive tbh. if someone is an awful person it is easy to demonstrate through their own posts and through reasoning and debate. if you can't do that you probably aren't worth listening to. 

      pandamaster is obviously not a high brow poster and either ignoring him or demonstrating his ineptitude through examples and evidence is actually contributing something, just calling him a name accomplishes nothing

      You realize that in virtually every faucet of society, and even most places online, insults and name-calling are not tolerated?

      CE is a cesspool of hostility in that regard.

      Why are you so upset that you can't insult people?

      That isn't how moderation works here (or anywhere else). If a post doesn't bother anyone enough to report them, there isn't any point in deleting the post. We don't moderate for funsies, we moderate because someone's post is interrupting the experience for another user.

      Is there a distinction made in flaming between saying something someone said is dumb, and calling them dumb?

      Like if someone said "I think Zelder is a pretty cool guy eh saves the princess and flies around on a boat" and someone else, unmoved by this brilliant, timeless joke, said "What? No that's dumb" would that be treated as a flame just the same as if they said "You're dumb!"?

      I think you may be confused, andei-person.

      A common thing that isn't considered flaming, is targetting someone's opinion rather than the person.

      Saying someone is dumb is flaming them.

      Saying someone is acting dumb is flaming them.

      Telling someone that pushing Bikini Bottom somewhere else to avoid Alaskan Bull-Worms is a dumb idea, that's not flaming, because you're targetting the idea, not the person.
